Buying products based on price? Here’s a video comparing Chinese made vs German made ball bearings.
Here we have a side-by-side comparison of the humblest of fruits from two industrial powerhouses: simple bearings made in China and Germany. Both are advertised, per the description, as “weapons-grade,” though apparently the German version costs a good 30 times as much.
And here the example why the ‘but this one’s cheaper’ argument doesn’t work…
Trial 2: the German bearings. One thumb-spin left to whirl, and whirl, and whirl. For a good 27 seconds.
Check out the video below that shows you the stark difference between the real product and the attempt at making a copy of it. We think the results pretty much explain for themselves!
Don’t just get your bearings. Get the good ones.
